Reviewed by Jonathan Priday

Surely if you take one of the finest vocal quintets and add to it the undoubted qualities of the London Symphony Orchestra you must end up with a five star album. Unfortunately not! It appears Messrs Nalle, Davis, Gates, Neal and Bu Hard were so overawed by the LSO they chose not to display their own talents to the full. The resulting album is a collection of solos, mainly by Ed Nalle, that lie somewhere between Steve Curtis Chapman and Steve Green. The rest of the band seem content to provide backup - instrumental and vocal. The songs themselves are fairly strong ranging from meditations on Christ -- "Servant Of Servants" and "When He Comes Again" -- through comfort and consolation ~ "There Is Hope" and "He'll Always Defend You" ~ to a final declaration of commitment -- "We Belong To You Alone" - but the arrangements are, to my ears, a little bland. As a confirmed fan of the Acapella Projects it seems a shame that only on "Mary, Mary" do we get to hear the distinctive sounds I, for one, expected. Still, for all my disappointment, they still turn in a polished performance.

Produced by long time member Ed Nalle along with the group; Great opening number "There is Hope"; I love this song!. Written by Ed and former 80's Glad member Bob Kauflin. "Mary, Mary" once again gives us that great Glad A cappella we so love! great song!
I LOVE IT!! "The Great Storm is Over"; nice recording,
(I do believe the tune is same as Peter Yarrow's 1962 song "The Cruel War"). Ed's brother Don who was also a former Glad member, duets on "Still He Gives Love" with Jim Bullard; another great song!
"In My Father's House" takes me back to their 1985
lp Champion of Love;would've fit nicely on the album.
The group would also release a Christmas cd later the same year; giving us a "Glad' year!!
GOD Bless! - Don
